A while ago, Netflix announced its slate of releases for October this year, and the list seems to be incredible. Among the many projects that will be made available to the audience on Netflix, one is I Am Legend. Interestingly, the 2007 sic-fi thriller movie will return to the small screens on 23rd October worldwide. The timing could not have been better, as Halloween is just around the corner. The film’s return comes nearly a year after the streamer removed some of the biggest titles from its catalog.

While the first installment will return to the small screens, the sequel, I Am Legend 2, is not far away. The sci-fi thriller has been a topic of much discussion among film buffs recently. Multiple theories and speculations about the series have already surfaced online. Moreover, a handful of big names from Hollywood, including Michael B. Jordan, have joined the cast for the upcoming film.

A possibility suggests how the Creed star might be going head-to-head against Smith’s Robert Neville in the sequel.

Michael B. Jordan to face off with Will Smith for the ultimate battle of humanity?

Since I Am Legend 2 will follow the alternate ending of the original film, the possibilities are endless. As the alternate ending shows how Neville is the last creature left on the planet, it gives rise to a chance of battle between the dark seekers and the scientist. At the same time, Michael B. Jordan’s role in the movie is unclear. So, there surely exists a possibility of the Creed II star playing a dark seeker in I Am Legend 2. If that stands true, the audience might witness an iconic duel between Jordan and Smith.
